Thanks to advancements in the medical field, getting the complexion you’ve always wanted doesn’t require months of expensive creams and serums or painful cosmetic procedures.
If you want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, minor scarring, or dark spots, laser skin resurfacing is able to cure a variety of superficial skin problems.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The procedure uses a laser to apply short pulses of light on your skin. It gets rid of damaged skin layer by layer so treatment is precise. Precision prevents accidental lightening of the skin.
The laser only removes the outermost layer of skin (epidermis) as it heats the skin beneath the top layer (dermis). This stimulates the growth of collagen to create skin that’s firm and smooth.
What’s the Procedure Like?
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are tailored for your skin type and current problems to reduce side effects and get the best results possible. Treatment time may vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
Before the procedure starts, your skin may be numbed with local anesthetics. The device is applied to your skin.
Recovering from Laser Skin Resurfacing
Depending on what type of laser is being used, your recovery could take one to two weeks if you follow your post-procedural care instructions carefully. Your face will have some redness.
You may need to clean the treated area(s) a few times a day with a recommended solution. We can recommend a protective skin care treatment to apply throughout the day to speed up your skin’s healing process.
Once you’re healed, sunscreen is a must whether you leave the house or not. Moisturizer is also key to allow the new skin to come in healthy.
